Another fine animal welfare article on the subject of the pit bull overpopulation crisis. Ohio, what have you done?
Pit bull advocates who successfully lobbied the Ohio legislature to pass HB14 have not scored a victory for pit bulls… they have scored a victory for pit bull breeders. By removing insurance and containment restrictions, its easier for more amateur dog fighters to become involved in this underground “sport”. Its easier for more young men who lack the drive and ambition to get an education and a real job to make money breeding “Monster Blue Pits” with bad hips and sketchy temperaments. Demand for hard looking dogs amongst irresponsible, transient youth will continue to feed the cycle of acquiring and abandoning pit bulls.
